Check PrettyFly83's photos from the BTT link I posted. Clear results for him, and impressive ones as well using the same wounding and methodology as in the study.
I just read the thread. Thanks. I usually read that forum too when I got time, lately I haven't. I haven't read the study yet but I will.
A little comment to PrettyFly83's results. He did not follow the recipe. He did it for sunspots first and the sideeffect was more hair while using minoxidil. So not the same methodology as in the study.
I'm agreeing with the theory that wounds heals and make the "organ" go back to the original baseline. I don't know where but I posted about the wounds on my wrists caused by scratching because of allergy. The result were that I healed perfect and I got hair growth on them. (mind you I'm quite hairy :hairy: Just not on my head...:sobbing
I also said something about a study from Japan I read many years ago where they on purpose made wounds on the head and let it heal. That resulted in hair regrowth in patients. They gave up the idea of having it as future baldness treatment program because there was too much pain involved, heh.
So based on these 2 things, the idea seems logical true. Now if it really works with a dermaroll + minoxidil is something time will tell. After all, PrettyFly83 has just started on minoxidil 3 months ago. It takes minoxidil minimum that much time before it works so it could be only minoxidil having an affect. Not being the devil advocate, just realist.
greyghost got a great personality even with the wife leaving and being bald for a long time. Some people in other threads could learn from this person. He should totally post pics since he's an old user of the drugs. We will be able to see if he's getting results because of the dermaroll or not since he's been using minoxidil for years.
I will be following that thread and this thread but not using dermaroll yet. I'm using momentasonfuroat to get rid of my dandruff which won't die no matter what. It works, and that's wonderful but I still got some weeks of applying before I can stop using it. I can't use the dermaroll and let that drug get into my blood. Not even by accident. So I will keep watching the others achieve results and then after a few months also start on it. Even if it doesn't help against hair loss, I hope I can still use it to get rid of the big dark spots I got had acne/pimples on my head.
Btw it's a great idea that greyghost got. That people keep posting their findings and pics each Friday. That will show it they get results in 12 weeks like the study says or not.
About the questions asked to the doctors. I don't think they mind. After all, if you found something great you would be more than willing to talk about it to others about your funds. The only thing PrettyFly83 should be aware of, is that he shouldn't sound like someone who's trying to snatch their idea but instead is trying to hear more about how great they are and how they did it.
Another way could be to act like ph.d. students from a med uni and asked them questions related to their research so you could copy the same study and see if you get the same results. If they don't want to give details it means they are lying and won't like others to find out. If they do it means they are 100% sure it works. After all, having more studies in the world only proves the theory/concept you are screaming about.
Still it's awesome of PrettyFly83 to take the initiative to contact the doctors in the study and ask them questions. Kudos.
